#3 Michigan State Spartans vs. #12 Seton Hall Pirates Official Game Thread

Hondo S. Carpenter

The #3 Michigan State Spartans are taking on the #12 Seton Hall Pirates tonight. They are a large and wide team and will possibly be the biggest team the Spartans might face this year.

But the story of this game was off the court. Just 24 hours prior to the Binghamton game, PG and player of the year Cassius Winston learned of the passing for his brother Zachary. Tonight the Spartans honored “SMOOTHIE” by wearing a patch in his honor.

They will be taking on the Seton Hall Pirates tonight at 8:30 PM on the road. That game can be seen on FS1. It is going to be fun to watch how the Spartan big men will respond.

MSU does not have the size, outside of Marcus Bingham Jr (MBJ) to go face to face, the Spartans are highly talented and athletic, and will they be able to use that advantage to get Seton Hall in trouble?

If they pull this out, Malik Hall is the reason. He has been unconscious, and thank God. Powell can’t miss!

Feels a lot like last March again. Quite a W for this team and a great opportunity to learn from it too. Credit Seton Hall, what an environment. Their crowd made the game. Without them, it's not the same
